Hey all,

Kaleidoscope has a public beta for their upcoming version featuring folder compare support:

Beyond Compare still rules Windows, but as long as there's a void to be filled in OS X it's good to see another contender stepping in.

I downloaded the beta for a play. It's pretty basic, very limited compared to BC3.

Folder comparison is pretty useless IMO as you have to open a new comparison tab for each sub-folder - there is no automatic recursion through the directories.

Roll on BC3 for OS X... I've only been waiting 6 years or so ;-)

Wow, looking great! Christmas comes early this year! Please allow me to bombard you with the questions I'm sure we all have... Will there be a public or private alpha/beta? Any ETA on that? Will it be a free or a paid upgrade for current licence owners?

Thanks guys, this is awesome news!

The Mac version will be released as a platform for Beyond Compare 4 (in addition to Windows and Linux). This means you will need a new license key for it.

Pricing will be the same, with the current dual platform license becoming an all platform license.

If you have a BC3 license, our standard upgrade policy will apply. This means if BC4 is released within 1 year of your BC3 purchase, it is a free upgrade. If it is more than 1 year after your license purchase, the new license is half price.

We already have a small group of private alpha testers picked out, we anticipate contacting them by email soon.

Super exciting! Beyond Compare is one of my all-time favorite tools. It blows away the competition. Can't wait to use a native version on OS X instead of via a VM or CrossOver.
